David Thorpe trained as a press photographer on the Kent and Sussex Courier in the 60s and got a job on Fleet Street, London’s legendary heart of the newspaper business. He went freelance after a while and specialized in show business and music photography but also covered the Northern Ireland troubles, the war in Croatia and Iraq and famine in Rwanda. He worked for News of the World in the 80s and for a short while in the late 90s left photography for the IT world until discovering digital photography. This led to creating a YouTube channel about Micro Four Thirds Photography.
